I have gone through this novel.I guess its one time read.I didn't found it too interesting.Also graphical novels do not attract me that much.

Is it a weird quirk that I despise sentences that begin with the letter "A," and oftentimes am opposed to sentences that begin with vowels, especially vowels such as "U" and "O?"

I don't think that's a weird quirk; not at all. I don't read books set in foreign countries if I can help it. I just don't like them. I think everyone has something that they don't like within reading. And if yours is a vowel thing, then it is.

Also, this book didn't thrill me too much either. I read it and finished it because I could. A graphic novel format makes for easy reading but I wouldn't run right out to read another GN by this author.
